About Us

ACH is a social enterprise that provides a range of integration and support services for refugees. During the past ten years, we’ve grown from a small-scale housing organisation to a leading provider of integration, employment and housing services for refugees and newly arrived communities in the UK.

Through our training subsidiary, Himilo Training, we are successfully expanding our services to deliver training, development and employment opportunities to the broader communities in which we operate. Building upon our award-winning #RethinkingRefugee campaign, we aim to progress 25,000 individuals towards median-salary employment over 10 years.
 
To support our goals, we’re looking for a Functional Skills and Employability Tutor to join us on a six month contract that has the potential to lead to a permanent position. This is a part-time role, working 24 hours per week.

This is a great opportunity for a qualified teaching professional to join an innovative organisation that helps people to realise their full potential.

For too long, narratives that promote division have dominated our headlines. Instead, we see refugees as people with talents, skills and aspirations. They are assets who can boost our economy and enrich our communities.

You will have the chance to make a positive impact on people from refugee and migrant backgrounds and give them the tools they need to achieve their professional and educational aspirations.

Acting as a role model for our positive culture, you will plan, prepare, deliver and evaluate courses for learners, including creating learning materials for each session.

Your role will also involve:

- Providing specialist information, advice and support to learners
- Monitoring, marking and assessing learners’ work and progress
- Registering learners on the correct awarding body site and qualification title
- Maintaining learners’ records, including assessments records, plans and progress
- Supporting the Teaching Co-ordinator in the successful operational management of the curriculum
- Contacting your learners if they fail to attend
- Ensuring learner surveys are carried out and monitored
